on my desk monday

It's a book!
Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is here!! This is a companion book to my Lunar New Year book, Bringing in the New Year so I hope people enjoy it! This is also the book where I painted the likenesses of my long-ago contest (using their photos).

The Moon Festival is one of the most important holidays of the year. While Bringing in the New Year focuses on the exuberance of the Lunar New Year, Thanking the Moon is about the harmony and peace of the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. This holiday is rather like Thanksgiving, where families gather together in honor of the moon. Here's a sneak peek at some of the interiors:

In honor of my new book Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival I'm running a week-long series of posts on the Moon Festival. Don't forget you can celebrate the book & the festival with me Sunday the 19th in NYC at the MOCA's Mid-Autumn Family Festival!

Received your newsletter today. I wanted to thank you for printing my daughter's drawing as your letter of the month. She was so happy to see it in your newsletter! Thank you! Any chance you will do a book signing or book promotion some where in eastern PA, MD or DC?
Thanks again!

ash-- I am working on "Dumpling Days" right now which will be a sequel to those two books. Just not a whole year, so I can't call it "Year of..."

Nature's Architect--I loved your daughter's drawing! So cute. Unfortunately no book promotions in those areas--I don't think I will be going on tour until next year. Right now, I have to stay put and write! But I'll let you know when I do start traveling.
